CHENNAI: The Madras High Court is all set to get 10 new judges as the Supreme Court collegium on Wednesday approved the proposal for elevation of 10 judicial officers as High Court judges. 

Once the appointments are approved by the Union Law Ministry and judges notified of their appointments, they will assume charge here, thus taking the strength of the High Court from 54 to 64, against the sanctioned strength of 75.
